Christmas Day

Christmas Day was very peaceful. I enjoyed talking with each of the children.  Bob worked on projects around the MH, and I did some weaving and read a bit.  The weather was a bit chilly with strong winds, overcast skies, and temperatures in the lower 60's.  In the evening we joined some others for Happy Hour, before returning home for a steak dinner with homemade apple pie for dessert.

Friday was a perfect weather-day, with blue skies, a soft breeze, and temps hovering near 80 degrees. I took a nice long walk with Auggie in the morning, and Bob and I ran some errands later.  

We have had a project planned for a while; that of insulating the upper cabinets in the slideouts.  These areas are not insulated very well from the factory, so we can feel the cold coming through on a chilly morning. Bob picked up a roll of insulation that has foil on both sides and what feels like a squishy gel in the center. 

It cut easily with scissors, and we used carpet installation adhesive to attach it to the outer walls and ceiling of the cabinets. I think it came out quite well, and should make a difference in hot or cold weather.  We got one salon wall of cabinets done today, with more to be done tomorrow.

You can also see the shelf Bob made for this cabinet. The space is 20" deep and 16" high, so there was a lot of stuff just crammed in there.  We can organize it much better now. I am so lucky to have such a handy husband!
